It is very simple to turn off in-app purchases on Apple devices, here’s how.
Every parent’s nightmare is the one where the mobile operator bill arrives and the kids have been spending thousands of Pounds/Euros/Dollars on in-app purchases.
As is its wont and in its interest, Apple’s default setting is for these purchases to be allowed. So, it takes about 30 seconds to stop this being a nightmare and a dream where everybody can spell at night. This is how you do it:
* On the iOS device, open the Settings screen. Tap General, and then tap Restrictions.
* Tap the option to Enable Restrictions. Enter and then re-enter a Restrictions passcode.
* By default, all of the apps and services are allowed. To disallow in-app purchases, tap on its button.
* From this point, all in-app purchases are disallowed and will only be activated if No Restrictions are reapplied
So now you know… all contributions to my entertainment budget gratefully received now that I’ve saved you all thousands of Pounds/Euros/Dollars.
